Re: 'X-men: DOFP' Official CAST Thread (announcements and discussion) - Part 2
Fox could have easily shared the lead between Wolverine, Cyclops and Gambit. To me, the three heavy heights regarding the male x-men and popularity.
To me they could have been like the Ironman, Thor and Cap of Marvel, with the three characters having a big part on their universe.
But sadly Fox went with the cheapest option. and less exciting, of course.
